Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Oil & Lotion

Wow, I've actually managed to review all the products in a Glossybox before the end of its respective month for a change! ;) This is the sea buckthorn-based body lotion and body oil by Weleda. The sea buckthorn is a fruit-bearing shrub, and its fruit can be used to create an oil that is supposed to have invigorating and anti-aging properties. I don't know how much of this oil is present in the products, because these sample sizes don't come with an ingredient list.

The body lotion makes my skin nice and soft. It gets absorbed into the skin rapidly and doesn't leave a sticky film behind. I feel like it moisturises my skin quite well. It has a fairly strong scent; kind of like citrus fruits with a hint of something herbal or spicy. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the scent, but it isn't too annoying either.

I was hesitant to use the oil, because I hate it when my skin feels sticky or greasy, and in my experience, that's exactly what happens when you use oils instead of gels or creams. In the end, I gave it a go anyway, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was hardly the case with this particular oil. Even though it got absorbed quite well rather than just laying on top of the skin, I feel like it wasn't as moisturising as the body lotion, however. I also felt the citrus-y smell was even stronger in this product (which probably makes sense, since I suspect the oil is more concentrated). All in all, I doubt I'd be buying this product; I still prefer a regular body lotion or butter. Interesting side note: I used this on a rather sunny day, and got quite a bit more tan than I usually do. It's possible than the sun was just very bright that day, I suppose, but I suspect the oil may also have had something to do with it.
